Get sketchy with me ...

Its a sketch challenge over at Heart 2 Heart challenges, it would awesome to have you participate with us this week. Create a card using the sketch below, upload a picture of it on the H2H blog site by next Sunday at 10 PM.

Make sure you stop by the blog even if you dont join the fun, theres some great cards featured!

REMINDER that our Thanks campaign is nearing its end, I am extending the date to submit a order until Saturday December 4th. Dont let this AWESOME campaign get by you. Need more details check the post below this one.

I started out with a kraft card base. I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to create the block pattern on the Autumn Terracotta cs, I also used my scoring board to score a border around my Sunflower cs. I stamped the flower pot and flowers in Sunflower ink on the Sunflower cs. I stamped three pots and three bunches of flowers on Colonial White cs, I stamped the flower pots on a seperate peice of cs and cut them out, I then popped them ontop of the first set of flower pots. I added some prisma glitter to the centers of the flowers. I layered the flower pot piece ontop of a piece of Buttercup Yellow cs. I wrapped jute around the three colored cs pieces. Topping it with a paper flower and paper leaf. The center of the paper flower is a brad with prisma glitter on it.

Todays challenge from Heart 2 Heart calls for a thank you card, perfect timing. Let me say Thanks a whole bunch for following my blog, I am tickled that you stop by from time to time. I am tickled even more when you leave a comment!

Gosh I really like these colors and the designer paper pack is a fav as well!! I created this 5 X 7 card by rounding out the bottom corners. I layered the B/T to three solid cs strips, two of the strips I textured with my cuttlebug folders! I sewed the 2 textured pieces with a zig zag stitch! I stamped the Thanks onto a colonial white tag, I stamped the Many onto a smaller Colonial white tag and the For Everything onto a simple strip of colonial white cs. I inked the edges of everything, it just softens the card and the edges dont look so rough and unfinished. I topped off my large tag with a satin chocolate ribbon.

Now when your done with your GIRLY creation, upload your picture to the H2H blog, by Sunday at 10 PM. You could be chosen as a Friday Five!!

I used a all time favorite stamp set, you can always bling it out and I did. I added prisma glitter to every petal and leaf. I outlined the stems with cyrstal gems. I stitched around the stamped cardstock. I layered it onto baby pink cs and cut it with my pinking shears. Hey the pinking shears always get neglected but they can add a whole lot to your cards or layouts. I added some flowers topped with baby pink buttons and a ivory ribbon. I added a piece of ivory crochet lace to the side of a piece of sweet leaf cs. I layered the whole chabang onto a kraft card base. Now I hope this card SCREAMS GIRLY!! I just love it!!

Good News my computer is HOME!!!
